I guess so, but some more special features may be nice on a few (especially 1900) Taxi Driver blu ray is great though so I guess you have a point, a good one.
^^The Apocalpse Now blu-ray is about as definitive as you can get really. It’s jam packed with features, and the picture is excellent.
Looking forward to getting Taxi Driver blu-ray. I ordered it last week.
I will only list films that (in my opinion) either don’t have passable releases or if it’s an OOP DVD and extremely rare. So, if it already has a 2-disc special edition from Warner Bros. or some other mainstream distributor, I won’t list it.
So, here goes…
- Nazarin (1959 – Luis Bunuel)
- The Devils (1971 – Ken Russell)
- Face to Face (1976 – Ingmar Bergman)(Wouldn’t be surprised if Criterion’s already working getting the rights)
- The Elephant Man (1980 – David Lynch)
- The Terminator (1984 – James Cameron)
- Hail Mary (1985 – Jean-Luc Godard)
- Kids (1995 – Larry Clark)(Maybe not as Criterion-worthy to some, but I’d love to hear more about this film since there are practically NO documentaries or anything like that out there)
- Gummo (1997 – Harmony Korine)
- I Stand Alone (1998 – Gaspar Noe), with Carne (1991) added in the bonus features.
- Buffalo ‘66 (1998 – Vincent Gallo)
- The Blair Witch Project (1999 – Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sanchez)(Whether you love or hate it, there’s no denying it’s importance in the horror genre)
- Lilya 4-Ever (2002 – Lukas Moodysson)
- The Brown Bunny (2003 – Vincent Gallo)
A Matter of Life and Death (1946)
True Stories (1986 — David Byrne)
Gummo (1997 — Harmony Korine)
Blue (1993 — Derek Jarman)
A Bruce Connor retrospective would be nice.
Anything by Matthew Barney, but this is impossible.
Well, damn. Sorry.
